Beyerdynamic DT880 600 Ohm headphone, in excellent condition. No marks or scratches. Includes original box and carry case.    Headphone has been recabled with a Denon D2000 cable (cut down to 1.8m from the original 3m), and both the worn out original headband and earpads have been replaced with a black custom one pro headband and genuine black Beyerdynamic velour earpads, respectively.    The original 3m Beyerdynamic cable is included, as is two replacement sets of the...
Looking to buy a pair of Grado SR60 or SR80 headphones, not overly concerned whether it's original, i or e series. As long as it's in good condition, preferably with original box. If you have a pair contact me and we can talk price and postage. I live in Australia. Thanks!
^ I very much believe that exact sentiment with my DT880s. Some people describe them as cold sounding, but I think they're just analytical (which to me is very neutral tonally). Warm, lush music sounds that way and cold, metallic music sounds that way. Some also describe them as bright, and I'd say they were a little bit on the bright side, they're not going to make any recording that wasn't already harsh sound harsh, or sibilant or piercing in my honest opinion.
The more I read, the more I suspect I would prefer the sound of the HE-560. I'll have to audition both to see what I think, but I'm surprised by the reports that the 400i has more consistent build quality than the 560. Can somebody give some more insight about this? It's utterly unacceptable for the cheaper model to be better built. 
Very, very interesting and cool headphone. Really liking the design and all the cool features. I think the amp is a great feature, especially since you can run it passive anyway. I'll have to try this out, but I wonder if I'll find it comfortable with the weight... Maybe, those pads are nice and phat which is promising!
Can anybody here comment on the soundstage and imaging of the 400i relative to the DT880?
Disappointing to see that they went with the right angle jack. Certainly not a deal breaker or anything but it makes absolutely no sense on a 6 foot cable to me, let alone on a headphone like the 400i which doesn't seem portable friendly at all (outside of being efficient enough). 
^ Yeah I was going to mention that mod actually, it certainly interests me.
Awesome, thanks, I'd greatly appreciate it! From Jerg's review the 400i sound like I would be drooling all over them (Both in sound and comfort), but his impression of the soundstage size only being "fair" worries me. I don't really know how large the DT880 is considered, but I wouldn't want an "upgrade" headphone to be a significant downgrade in the soundstage. As long as it sounds open enough and isn't cramped sounding is the main thing. I will definitely go out of my...
